About the Course

Course Objective
The Objectives of this course is to explore the principles, algorithms, and data structures involved in the design and construction of compilers. Topics include context- lexical analysis, syntax analysis, symbol tables, error recovery, code generation, and code optimization.

Pre Requisites
Basic understanding of at least one programming language such as C, Java etc.It would be an additional advantage if you have had prior exposure to Assembly Programming.
